, another unofficial release, more backported bugfixes


Well a couple people used the 0.7.16wt1 release, including Thom May
who had issues with the version number cooperating with gem.
Consequently I took out the ‘wt’ from the version, but this is still
an unofficial, unsupported release.

I pulled in the changes on Thom’s internal branch and grabbed some
more low hanging fruit. Don’t ask what methodology I used. It’s magic.

Grab the github branch, or the debs in my launchpad ppa. I’ve only
tested this on Ubuntu Karmic, as it goes.
